We are a dynamic and visionary organization committed to improving people’s lives in our community through the transforming power of chemistry. We strive to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Kalamazoo, Allegan and Van Buren counties.
Time is getting close for our KACS 75th anniversary gala celebration on the main floor of the Air Zoo (6151 Portage Road) on the evening of Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 6-9:30 pm.
There will be time to socialize, reminisce, celebrate our accomplishments, enjoy dinner, and be treated to a presentation on the SR-71. The Executive Director of the ACS will join our celebration, and we will have access to four of the Air Zoo's event experiences (including the simulators and the 4-D theater) for those who would like to take advantage of them!
We look forward to seeing you at this family-friendly event. The cost for the buffet dinner for each attendee age 12 years and older will be $10.00 (young people under 12 may come at no cost) so please plan to join fellow KACS members and friends that evening for this special party! See you there!
Registration is required to attend: Register

Happy Anniversary to the Kalamazoo Section! You deserve tremendous thanks and gratitude for your devotion to your passionate members, your community and our science over the past 75 years. I have no doubt that the next 75 years will be filled with even more events, outreach, and education that strengthen the Society and demonstrate the transforming power of chemistry.
On behalf of Kalamazoo College, congratulations to the Kalamazoo ACS Chapter on 75 years of good chemistry! We at K are particularly appreciative of the "good chemistry" that exists between the local chapter, our chemistry department, and our ACS student group. Together, they have applied that "good chemistry" in community outreach and in engagement, professional development and networking with local scientists who practice chemistry in industry, government and education. That "good chemistry" has launched many careers and helps sustain one of the finest undergraduate chemistry programs in the country…right here in Kalamazoo. Thank you, Kalamazoo ACS, for your commitment to the love, the sharing, the explication and the importance of chemistry in Kalamazoo.
